I think the sunglasses really made this cool dancer’s look. Seeing him reminded me of a story I once heard about a prank the Indian extras played during the filming of the movie Little Big Man. I have no idea if the story is true but supposedly it happened when a scene was being filmed that called for a line of warriors in warpaint to ride up and pause threateningly all along a ridge overlooking the settlers or wagon train or whatever below. They rode up as planned but when the cameras zoomed in they found they were all wearing mirrored aviator sunglasses. I hope the director got a good laugh before asking them to shoot it again, sans sunglasses.
